Ruslan Russian Alphabet Starter An introduction to the Cyrillic alphabet for learners of Russian and for travellers to Russia and Ukraine by John Langran. This is a 96 page pocket-sized booklet in full colour to help travellers and learners of Russian learn the Russian alphabet and at the same time meet a range of cultural, historical and practical references as a general introduction to the Russian language and to Russia and Ukraine. The text is interactive, you can write in the pronunciation in English letters to help you remember the Russian sounds. One difference between this and other Russian Alphabet materials is that we have used a wide number of cultural, historical and political references, and included valuable words for getting around in Russia, especially in the section "A page for every letter". The student can learn something about Russia as he or she is learning the alphabet. The process has less risk of boredom. The booklet will be useful for school groups and individuals travelling to Russia, as well as for beginner learners.
